The breakfast on the roof top was delicious and with an awesome view. I have learned to pack light when I travel - the room (like my... More

We spent 1 night at this hotel. The rooms are small but nice. Most of the furniture is clean. The location is perfect. You can walk everywhere. The breakfast was small but nice with cereals, bread, eggs, juice, coffee and tea etc. The staff was nice and had some useful advices for us.

A great location, really nice staff, clean room, and a wonderful terrace breakfast (6 Euro) with the best views, including the Acropolis and Metropolitan Cathedral. Relaxing and sunny too. Small rooms, awkward shower, but so worth putting up with, for the the breakfast, terrace view, and excellent location. Our room had a great view and balcony too.

Stayed one night to catch flight home but wish we were here longer. Easy walk from x95 airport bus and central to all the attractions. Beautiful shops and plentiful eating choices. We booked an acropolis view room and were very pleased with the room and amenities. Very clean throughout, generous sized room for Europe, modern bathroom with great rain shower.... More

We have stayed here second time, roooms renovated now. If you dont mind small rooms you will get very much value for money with arco, good wifi, balcony and very central location, many rooms even with partial view to acropolis. Clean. Staff is professional and very friendly. Small jewel in central Athens.

Rooftop view to Acropolis is a must ! Funny and cool receptionist eventhough the lift is the smaller i ever use. Overall very good location and budget to stay in, worth every peanut you spend. Good for 1-3nights if you dont have big big luggage. the room is small

Excellent new hotel in the Electra chain. Beautiful modern design that captures the feel of the city center with breathtaking views from the rooftop restaurant and pool. You can see all of Athens and, on a clear day, even Pireaus. The rooms are spacious and elegant. The restaurant is a special treat.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
